Dimitris Haidas, industrial designer and artist, constructed his prototype solar bench, Energypress.Gr reported. The project’s author is an associate of the Department of Wood and Furniture Design and Technology in Larissa’s Technological and Educational Institute.

The wooden bench, similar to ones already installed in the last several years in Serbia, Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, has solar panels for users to charge their mobile phones and other devices via a USB connection. The system on the top is small but powerful, the report said.

Haidas explained users of mobile devices often use up the battery, and that he introduced an ecological solution. “I smartly connect the piece of furniture which in this case is a seat for rest, with the new technology – that a solar panel is – and I turn the bench into a charging station. It presents the beginning of the establishment of green ideas in an urban environment,” he added. The inventor used parts printed in three dimensions.

The solar bench was placed at the swimming pool in Neapoli district of the town in central Greece. Haidas covered all the development costs.
